The new Oishei Children's Hospital will feature a memory lane exhibit, showcasing technological advancements and equipment used in the years since Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo was founded 125 years ago.
The exhibit also will include historic hospital items, artifacts and memorabilia that reflect the history of the soon-to-close hospital at 219 Bryant St.
"The hospital has been around for 125 years so there's a lot of history there and we don't want it to be forgotten," said Elizabeth Ortolani, a spokeswoman for Women & Children's Hospital.
All Kaleida Health employees and physicians are invited to drop of donations by Oct. 6 in the current hospital's administrative offices. .
Items that have begun to trickle in include an old baby book, a pen used to write baby names on hospital bracelets and the hospital's bambino ceramic logo.
